China's Ministry of Health, Community Health Association of China, Bayer Health Care and a local health publisher have kicked off a HOME patient education project. The exercise aims to train some 100,000 community doctors covering 12,000 community health service centers across more than 100 cities, as well as provide public disease and health education programs for patients and population at risk. The total investment of HOME is expected to reach 10 million yuan (1.4 million). MOH's deputy minister points out that setting up a community-based chronic disease management model represents an important breakthrough to solve the issue of limited health care resources and expensive medical care. The latest program seeks to involve more private organizations to build up such community services. (Click here for more - Chinese language)
